Thread: mbunas breeding...

ive been toying with the idea of downgrading a bit....
meaning i would get rid of my green severums(almost like giving a child up for adoption in my eyes....) put my gold sev in the 65 by himself, with the syno cats and my BN pleco, get rid of the rest of my fish in my 75 and move the whole mbuna setup (substrate, rocks, filters, everything. plus more rocks to accomodate more mbuna) over to my 75 and use the 55 as a growout tank(and maybe in the future a breeding colony of peacocks?)
the stocking for the 75 would be:
4x maingano(1 extra female)
4x socolofi(3 new females)
4x zebra(removing 1 male to be replaced with a female)
4x yellow lab(1 more added, not interested in having these breed)
4x yellow peacock(1 male, 2 more females added)
4x OB peacock(3 more, mine isnt sexed yet so assuming its male 3 more females)
the peacocks would either be moved out and replaced by demasoni or something of the sort, or moved to my 55 as a breeding colony in future. depending on how this whole breeding experience goes.
these are just my thoughts on it, and ive not even begun to try to bring myself to clean out the rest of my tanks.......

well i did it guys, cleaned out my 75. removed my green severums from my 65 and replaced them with my gold severum (named melbourne). the fish that i gave away to my lfs to clear out my 75 were:
1x common pleco
2x german ram
1x green terror(juvie)
also my green severum pair from the 65.
my 75 is now housing my mbunas! the 55 has been cleared out for a growout, and i have a batch of around 25 maingano fry in the fry tank:) '
any suggestions on another species(maybe 2) that i could add to my mbuna colony? i want them to breed as im gonna be selling the fry.Coastie-to-be... hopefully.
